From Superwolf's home in the sea comes a new, long-awaited exclamation. "You'll Get Eaten, Too" is a sunbaked song-comet streaking through our suddenly emptied, wide-open skies. Ostensibly a song about meat and the star-crossed destinies of us all, here in the chain of organic life, the song explores affirmations, impermanence and downfall for anything that can evolve and grow (like bacteria....or a virus), in a taut and purposeful three minutes of rock anthem. Atop burgeoning arpeggiation and soaring string bends, Bonnie Billy and Matt Sweeney get ever higher, voicing conflict, contradiction, acceptance and celebration in a manner that invites all to sing with them.
"You'll Get Eaten, Too" dates from Superwolf's long middle-period between their initial album release (2005) and the planned release of a new album, which is almost fully rendered, awesome and now awaiting the new world order to be sorted. Will music be marked any more non-essential than it already has? Matt and Bonnie certainly hope so. In the meanwhile, "You'll Get Eaten, Too" is a (de)commissioned number from a decade back, recorded at the old Rove studio HQ in Shelbyville with Paul Oldham and Peter Townsend on hand to round out the sound. With such a message to send, and such energy, "You'll Get Eaten, Too" has sat it out for too long, waiting to play a role - but the time is now, as a new organic growth spreads unchecked across the nations, truncating life as we know it everywhere.
Faced with rallying support on any number of fronts, Bonny and Sweeney are throwing the profit from this single behind NYC's Superiority Burger, as good a vegetarian/and sometimes vegan option as there is - as well as the beleaguered staff of Drag City, currently facing an uncertain future slinging their own patties. Sing for your support, please!
Featuring artwork with a timely new take on the original Superwolf artwork from original artist Spencer Sweeney, "You'll Get Eaten, Too" is available for consumption on Bandcamp exclusively for 3 days (and then wide), for $3 or more - and please note the 'or more' here, as anything extra you give will benefit disenfranchised workers struggling to get back to making alternative products for the world to consider (and consume).
